Stay and Tour - Package Deal
|The Central Brittany B & B|
In partnership with the Central Brittany B and B, we are delighted to be able to offer three very special package breaks in the pretty village of Rohan, on the banks of the Nantes-Brest canal.
This package is available in September, October or December 2021 and will include bed, breakfast, dinner (on two nights out of three) and THREE of our archaeological tours in central Brittany.
September 3rd – 5th inclusive ( 3
night stay - check out on 6th)- two rooms left
October 20th – 22nd inclusive ( 3 night stay - check out on 23rd) to coincide with the autumn equinox
December 20th – 22nd inclusive ( 3 night stay - check out on 23rd ) to coincide with the winter solstice
On the evening of your arrival you will have the opportunity to meet your guide, Phil, who will tell you a little about what you will see over the following two days and answer any questions you might have.
Your tours will be centred upon locations within 20 miles (roughly 30 minutes) of Rohan and each tour has been designed with a specific aim in mind.
Your first tour, The Locminé Loop, takes place in the afternoon and will give you a flavour of the sheer range of differing monuments to be found in the Breton countryside. There are some “oohs” and “aahs” and some definite “wows”. Please be aware that not all the sites are accessible for people with mobility problems and there will be some slip, trip and bump hazards, but this is a great tour for those who like to absorb themselves in a landscape and don’t mind getting a little mucky.

Tours two and three take place on the following day and we recommend taking a delicious packed lunch which is available by prior arrangement.
In the morning you will enjoy the Ménéac Markers tour. This short tour starts in La Trinité-Porhoët and links together a series of similar monuments which, at first site, appear not to have much connection to each other. The story they have to tell, however, shows just how well prehistoric people understood the land they lived in.

After enjoying our picnic lunch we will then head west for about 35 minutes to take the Guerlédan Heights tour. The last of your three tours will take you through some beautiful scenery to visit a cluster of “allée couverte” tombs, ending with a truly unique monument that speaks volumes about the role of ritual and religion throughout human history.
As with your first tour, there are some slip and trip hazards which mean that they are not suitable for guests with limited mobility. There are also some short, but steep slopes to be aware of which might leave you puffing a little! As with any outdoor activity we would remind you to dress appropriately for the weather, and to ensure that you come equipped with hats, bottled water, suncream … or waterproofs!
